Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackburn

My IFA has requested my Blackburn law firm’s panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have e-mailed my local Blackburn branch but they don't know it.

The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Blackburn solicitor . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.

My fiance and I are refinancing our penthouse in Blackburn with Nationwide. We have a son approaching twenty who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the property is repossessed. I have two questions (1) Is this document specific to the Nationwide conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his entitlement to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Nationwide. This is solely used to protect Nationwide if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Nationwide had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

I can see plenty of here about conveyancing in Blackburn but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Blackburn

Do not opt for the lowest Blackburn conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Blackburn. The Blackburn property was put into my name in December. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Some lenders would take a practical view as this obligation is primarily there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of properties.

Is it correct that all Blackburn CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Skipton conveyancing panel?

A selection of banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
